Given the Netcool Architecture, customer requirements on event data and customer processes, modify the ObjectServer schema and create ObjectServer automations so that the ObjectServer is customized to meet requirements. .
Given the Netcool Architecture, authentication requirements and Web GUI user processes, configure Web GUI so that the Web GUI is customized to meet requirements.
Given Omnibus has been installed and configured, configure pages and views so that pages and views are customized per the customer’s requirements.
Given Omnibus has been installed and configured, use the Administrator GUI to add an external tool, so that an external tool has been configured.
Given that the Web GUI is installed and running and administrator permission is available, configure the user permissions and portlet defaults so that users permissions are configured to successfully modify/adjust portlet configurations.
Given ID requirements and installed and configured Omnibus, configure the Accelerated Event Notification (AEN) Client so that the AEN Client is configured.
Given installed and configured Omnibus, configure the HTTP/OSLC ObjectServer Interface so that the HTTP/OSLC ObjectServer interface is configured.
Given Omnibus has been installed and configured, configure HTTP and OSLC so that you can communicate with the probes using HTTP and OSLC.
Given the Installed and configured ObjectServer, Netcool Architecture document and hardware, Identify and configure the probes for remote communication so that remote configuration of probes is complete.
Section 4: Administration
Given ObjectServer has been installed and configured and ID privileges are available, perform administration tasks on the ObjectServer so that ObjectServer is administrated.
